NEW GENERATION PARTNERING   

Finally!  Important breakthrough -- Chugach Electric pro-consumer board leads in partnering with Homer Electric for new generation to save ratepayers money.  Golden Valley Electric also joins in to form a Unified Power Provider (UPP) for the Railbelt. 

FIRST TIME UTILITIES ARE KNOWN TO HAVE EVER COMMITTED TO PROVIDING ELECTRICITY AT THE "LOWEST COST POSSIBLE!!"

  • "In a joint statement, Chugach Board President Elizabeth Vazquez, Homer Electric Board President Dave Carey, and Golden Valley Board President Bill Nordmark said the UPP is an attempt to unify the Railbelt and provide reliable electric service at the lowest cost possible".  -- Joint Chugach, Homer and Golden Valley Electric press release

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT ACHIEVEMENT.  CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW CHUGACH ELECTRIC REFORM BOARD FOR ITS LEADERSHIP AND OUTREACH TO HOMER ELECTRIC.  

ML&P also agrees to joint new generation with Chugach and Homer Electric.
